Ripple emulator - author id does not match



I created simple app from tutorial and installed debug token to myplaybook.


Now ripple emulator was able to succesufully package and created .bar file


I tried to package and launch the app but I keep getting 


failure 881 application author does not match debug token author


I checked my config.xml for author and debug token author and they were same


I tried to lauch from command line but the still same error


I went in to bbwp.properties and <debug_token> was empty so I inserted full path 


but still the same error?


is there anything else I can try? how do I match the author?


Please use plain text.

Try bb10 method( maybe its work for playbook's web works -
Rename the debug token to debugtoken.bar and move it into the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK installation folder

Re: Ripple emulator - author id does not match

renameing the debug bar file in my Webworks folder to debugtoken.bar worked for me too! 


The docs need to be corrected!
